Welfare Benefits Development Manager
Fixed Term Contract/Secondment (24 months)
Full time [34.5 hours] we are open to a conversation about how you work these hours
Salary Range - 44-49k – plus car allowance if applicable
The cost of a cancer diagnosis adds an additional £1000 (on average) a month on top of a person living with cancer's (PLWC) outgoings. We at Macmillan Cancer Support are in partnership with 88 and growing community partners who deliver specialist support to PLWC. We are looking for an experienced person, who knows the complexities of the Welfare Benefits system and is able to spread great practice across the UK.
We are striving to do everything we can to ensure that our workforce is representative of the people we support, and those who support us. We advocate for being an inclusive organisation, where everyone can feel that they belong and where there are no barriers to success.
We want every individual to feel empowered to bring their best to work, and that’s why we offer flexibility in our working locations, working hours and benefits so we can support you in your life and your career, and we welcome a conversation about how these options can best support you.
We offer a range of flexible working patterns, such as compressed hours, e.g. 34.5 hours in 4 days instead of 5, flexibility to work earlier or later around our core working hours of 10am-4pm and more options.
